This guide assumes you've read the standard Curation Tutorial, which is highly recommended to go through.

Recognizing Xara Plugin

  • Xara Plugin content files use the .web file extension. The website can also mention a program called Xara Webster, which was used to create .web files; this is why Xara Plugin has "W" as its logo.
  • Xara Plugin MIME types are application/vnd.xara and application/x-CorelXARA.
  • The developer had other products with Xara in their name, such as CorelXARA (graphical editor), Xara3D and Xara X. These are not related to the plugin.

Curation Steps

Set the Application Path to FPSoftware\startXaraPlugin.bat. Xara images can run directly, but the plugin will crash at resolutions higher than 1600x1600. To prevent that, you should embed your image. This is a sample for embedding Xara, where width and height must be lower than 1600:

<embed src="image.web" type="application/vnd.xara" width="x" height="y">

Save this as a .html file and set the Lauch Command to the HTML.

Troubleshooting

If a file downloaded from Wayback Machine shows "Incompatible plugin version", it mainly means that the image was saved incorrectly and there is nothing can be done about it.
